LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Indianapolis Colts defensive end Chris McCain is facing battery charges in California from an incident in January.
According to TMZ, court documents say McCain is accused of grabbing a woman's neck and spitting on her on Jan. 7.
McCain is facing two counts of misdemeanor battery and could face up to six months in jail in addition to fines and probation if convicted of the crime.
The Colts signed McCain in May after waiving tight end Randall Telfer.
McCain previously played for the San Diego Chargers until the end of the 2017 season and had initially placed a right of first refusal on him, which was rescinded in April - making him available for the Colts to scoop up.
McCain has 35 career games and has recorded 34 tackles so far in his career since becoming an undrafted free agent in 2014.
The Colts released a statement Tuesday evening following the reports.
